1 hour from our front door

Just calling in to say hello!
 We are holidaying in our caravan at beautiful Port Stephens on the beach at Fingal Bay with its golden sandy beaches and beautiful crystal clear waters. The perfect setting for rest  relaxation and some stitching .The Bay here is approxamately 2  1/2 times the size of Sydney Harbour and ideal for snorkelling, surfing and what I like to do beach fishing. It is also regarded as the Dolphin capital of Australia. Whale watching is popular here from May through to November. Something which my husband and I enjoy during that time around the beaches 10 mins from our home. We are having a short break before Easter while the weather has taken a turn for the better after the pouring rain and floods in our  State of New South Wales has just experienced

Some photos while boating on the Bay.



 This is the Tomaree Quilt 
we came across in the libary while here designed and crafted buy the Bay Quilters an unusual quilt and was hanging very high on the wall making it diffucult to view.I could see from a distance that a great amount of work  went into the sewing of it.

I love this Quilting verse.


 I will leave you with some photos of the recent floods.






  Some of the flooded country towns.

Hopefully some finished sewing projects to show soon, I am working on some .Goodnight .
Till next time. Happy sewing .
